There may be an over-abundance in new podcasts lately, but we’re thrilled that Dr. Mark Hyman is putting his hat in the ring. One of functional medicine’s leading doctors and a best-selling wellness author, Dr Hyman’s influence is much needed in the world of pods. Here’s why we’ve been tuning in to The Doctor’s Farmacy…
The Pod: The Doctor’s Farmacy by Dr. Mark Hyman; Episode 1 with Michael Moss on Salt, Sugar, Fat and The Role of the Food Industry in Creating Food Addiction
The Message: According to Dr. Hyman, we’re seeing an increase in the prevalence of chronic disease rooted in food systems, agricultural policies and healthcare politics that don’t necessarily promote health. Michael Moss, “a New York Times investigative reporter turned food-focused journalist, Pulitzer Prize winner for Explanatory Reporting, and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us” joins him to talk about addictive foods.
Through his detailed research on our current food industry, Moss helps unveil Big Food’s mission to get consumers hooked on their products through ingredients engineered to be “hyper-palatable”. Palatable we can appreciate, but, as you can imagine, Big Food’s goals are often misaligned with consumer health.
Why We Loved it: The truth hurts, but we finished this podcast as more conscious consumers. Our health is highly impacted by large influences in food, agriculture and politics to a degree that most consumers aren’t educated enough on. Dr. Hyman’s new podcast is diving deep with key conversations about health and wellness that need to be had. Tune in and tell us what you think!
